Acceptance and Empathy in Gaming Culture


Towards the end of the Pikmin 3 massacre (R.I.P.), a conversation between Rachel of Double Jump fame and I triggered a rant about acceptance and empathy in games. With a bit more of both, I think the greater discourse around games could be a much more positive experience for all. Don’t have a magic wand to make that change in the world overnight, but I’ll try my best to be respectful of other people’s opinions, having healthy discussions around differing views without resorting to personal attacks, and prevent myself from acting as a gatekeeper to others.
